10 mortifying Tinder stories that will make you want to delete your app

“This guy texted me from the burrito place to tell me he’d already ordered me the salad.”

NEARLY EVERYONE HAS a Tinder horror story. But Redditors have been sharing some of the best in this AskReddit thread.

1. The forgetful date

Source: aafes49

My buddy isn’t the smartest man. He picked a chick up and drove to a motel. They were walking into the room and she says, “oh shit, I forgot my purse in the car do you mind if I go grab it?” He says, “yeah that’s fine,” and tosses her the keys. 5 minutes later he walks outside wondering where she is and his car is gone.

Went on a date with a girl who had already told her whole family about me, before we even met. And she wanted me to meet them in person on the first date.

4. The ‘crazy roommate’

I started talking to this really sweet guy for about two weeks and things were going well. Then I started getting calls from this girl, who he claimed was his crazy roommate that was in love with him and kept trying to get him fired from jobs. Turns out, she wasn’t the one lying, she was actually his live-in girlfriend, and they had moved here together from a different state.

5. The sportsman

Showed up to the restaurant, waited about 30 minutes. Ordered myself some food and was about to leave when he texted me: “there’s a liquor store across the street from the restaurant, can you pick me up 2 six packs?”

I told him I wouldn’t.

He says he’s decided to play frisbee with his dog instead.

6. The dinner date

We met and had a great first date. Second date was even better. Things kept going for about 2 months until she told me she went out with me originally in an attempt for a Dinner with Schmucks type thing where her and all her friends would bring the worst Tinder date.

7. The woman who saw red

I went on a date with a guy and the entire time he was talking about how men are superior and how there have been scientific studies to show that “women have an emotional reaction to the color red when they see it”.

9. The Hat

Someone [f] matched me [m] while I was at work. By the time I got home I had 4 messages from her.
  1. Are you always wearing a hat?
  2. Does it not get really manky?
  3. Seriously, do you even have hair?
  4. Oh shit, you don’t have cancer do you?

FYI, I don’t have cancer and hadn’t realised that I was wearing a hat in all my pictures.

10. And The Burrito

This girl (we’d been chatting for like a week or so,) hit me up around 10 pm on a Sunday night and said she’d be in my neck of the woods on her way home and wanted to see if i wanted to hang out. I did. So she comes over, and she’s got a bag of Mexican food with her. So i put on an episode of Always sunny, and she busts out a monster bean and cheese burrito and a carne asada quesadilla. She asked if i wanted any, but i had already eaten. So this (skinny, mind you) girl puts down BOTH OF THESE FUCKING THINGS in like 10 minutes. Just destroyed like 2 pounds of food. She wipes her face off, grabs my hand, rubs her tits with my hands, and gets up and goes, “welp, i gotta go, you can tell your friends you at least got something out of it.”

Never to be seen again. I’m still in love with her.

- StrungoutScott

Which just goes to prove that actually love is real.
